MaalaThe design signifies the love of Gyarsi Devi for her family. She recollects the memories of her marriage, where she had announced her union with her husband by wearing a garland around her neck. Today, she has three children, whom she loves a lot. She divided the design into three parts, with each part dedicated to her three children. She chose the color blue to show her love for her children, which she believes is as boundless as the blue skies. She calls the rug ‘Maala’- meaning the garland, which marked the beginning to a beautiful life, two decades ago.
